Welcome to my second Beyond the Books post. This post was inspired by Lexxie @Unconventional Bookviews' Up Close and (Un)conventional, who was inspired by Cuddlebuggery. It's meant to be a way for y'all to get to know me better on a personal level - Beyond the Books. ;)
They Grow Up Too Fast
As y'all probably know by now, I'm a mom. :) I have THREE beautiful, talented, incredible children. (I might be a little biased ;) The last 2 weeks have been a little hard for me. First of all, my oldest started driving. Well, she's been driving for over a year, but she started driving without me in the car. The first morning she took off for band camp, with her younger sister in the front seat...well, I'm not gonna lie. I cried. It made me all the more aware that my kids are growing up. And they won't be with me for much longer. As if that wasn't enough to make me blue...Jax and I have made it a tradition to go on daily hikes while his sisters are in band camp the week before school starts. On our first hike of the week, I had the startling realization that this was our last summer to do our hikes. Next year, he'll be joining his sisters at band camp. And then this week, they started school, and I was left thinking "Where did the summer go?!?" I wasn't ready for them to go back to school. We didn't get to do all the fun things I'd planned.
The lesson here? Enjoy every single minute! They grow up so quickly and they'll be gone in the blink of an eye.
